Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: 1985

I am also in the "I don't like to listen past 81" category. But at least I'm moving up, before I used to say I don't listen beyond 79 or 80.

I like the "best of the worst" description.

11/21/85 is probably the only show from the whole year that I could actually tell you most of the setlist. I am notorious for an extreme lack of knowledge of 80's/90's GD. Sure there's some "good" stuff in there, but as a guy who has every setlist and note from 66-77 or so memorized, the 80's and 90's just don't really do it for me. I mean I can listen to it if I "have" to, I'm not gonna get up and yell "turn that crap OFF!" I don't hate those years, and I don't begrudge those who do like those years, they're just not for me. I spend most my time in the 72-74 range, with extended vacations in the 68-71 and 76-78 eras.

So my answer is no, I do not like 1985.
